I have strong convictions, although I am open-minded and tolerant of others' beliefs. I am very emotionally mature, I express myself in an effective and positive way. Humor is a big part of my life; I have a witty/sarcastic sense of humor. I love to laugh, especially at myself. I am honest, sometimes to a fault, and I would hope to meet someone who values the truth.
I am passionate about learning, helping people, teaching, and traveling. I have worked so hard in my life to be able to travel around the world. I would like to visit Italy(again), Greece, Egypt, England, Ireland, Spain, Alaska, Hawaii(again), Japan, China, and Australia. I know a small list, but those are only the locations that are at the top of my list. This year I am planning on visiting Yellowstone, Mexico, and the Appalachian Mountains. I enjoy most things that are novel. I am very big into experiencing different types of cultures, foods, and localities.
I have a bachelor degree in Computer Science from the University of Missouri, Go Tigers.
I read books ranging from motivational stories, science fiction thrillers, and non-fictional novels. I recently read an amazing book called "Born to Run", discussing the pleasures of running, different running cultures, and the phenomenon known as a Ultramarathon(or Ultras for short).
I like all kinds of music. When I was younger I enjoyed alternative, soft, hard, and classic rock. More recently I have came to appreciate Rap, top 40, classic, and country.
